  1. I may not be the “expert” Willard Waller is, but he seems to be doing a whole lot of generalizing. I wonder how many Vets agreed with his analysis?


      1. I guess it depends on what they saw and heard and felt and if they bottle it up inside. But I guess you could never be the same once you see death.

    Willard Waller, I think, was trying to be sympathetic. Sweeping generalizations have always found their way into confounding problems such as this.

Though they weren’t all then either, I suppose. I like my insulated cocoon of a life so much that I don’t think too hard on the ugly stuff 😦
